Examination of Drug-Induced Liver Injury in upcyte® Hepatocytes

Liver toxicity is a major cause of drug failure in clinical trials and leads to the market withdrawal of many approved drugs today. Due to species differences in drug metabolism, it’s also difficult to extrapolate results obtained from preclinical animal models to humans. But upcyte® hepatocytes may be the key to reducing attrition from metabolism-mediated toxicity and improving the safety of drug candidates. Discover the results of one study by INDIGO Biosciences that examined cytotoxicity in upcyte® cells from four different donors for twelve compounds. This free scientific poster shares details of the study and explores the utility of upcyte® cells for screening compounds for hepatotoxicity and the rapid assessment of variability in humans for hepatotoxic responses.

This Poster Will Discuss:

  • The utility of upcyte® cells for screening compounds for hepatotoxicity
  • The sensitivity of upcyte® hepatocytes to a variety of known hepatotoxicants
  • The ability of upcyte® cells to bioactivate compounds using cytochrome P450 inhibitors
  • The rapid assessment of variability in humans for hepatotoxic responses

upcyte® cells are proliferating human hepatocytes that retain important drug metabolizing enzymes, such as cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4), which make them an attractive model system to examine drug-induced liver injury.
